|||Sunday Tickets Still Available|||

We are excited and honored that long time Wax Trax! all-star, Mark Durante (KMFDM, Revolting Cocks), will perform with multiple bands at April’s RETROSPECTACLE. Durante was one of the label’s original secret weapons, and responsible for much of the violent guitar sound that defined many of the label bands.

Friday Night:
After Front 242, Metro has graciously offered to let us all stay and continue the party (if you’ve been to Metro then you you how efficient they are at clearing the house after a show)
There will be plenty of music that we used to play in the store as well as a ton of label gems, DJ’d by some of Chicago’s best.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Friday night bands have agreed to come out on the main floor to meet and greet whoever wants to stick around. The bar will stay open and of course you can always escape to Smart Bar downstairs if you’re feeling the need to spread out.
